    Default I can't make out this writing, any help?

    This evening I discovered that one of my Vandas had produced an absolutely beautiful Bloom (light was fading, will post Pic. tomorrow). I had not noticed it before because we have had a week of non-stop rain.
    I brought the tag in, and decided to check it out on the Internet. Horror of horrors, I have tried spelling it every which way, and Nothing comes up.
    The tag says "V. Tawelwan (or Tawawan) X V. Pornpimol. I have found V. Pornpimol and can see the influence, but cannot find the other part of this cross.
    Is the first part familliar to any of you, what is the correct spelling? Help!!

    Thank you SarahBean, That's it . The hand writing on the tag was terrible, I would never have thought that there was "ee" in there. I will post a pic. tomorrow, in the Vanda section. You can look for it.
    Thanks again for your help.
